On my old tweed Fenders that I used to gig with, I used a computer fan from Radio Shack. On some of them I took a stiff wire, ran it thru the mounting holes and then hung the fan from the back of the amp. I'd hang it off the back panel. Other times I used the same kind of fan and screwed a block of wood to one side of it. This would let me lay it inside on the bottom of the amp. The block of wood would allow the air to get under it to blow it up at the tubes. To power the fan I would buy a cheap extension cord, cut the female end off and wire it straight to the leads on the fan. A little bit of air moving like that drastically reduces heat soak in a combo amp. The clip on fans are big enough to be a hassle. Just one more thing to carry. The little computer fans just stayed in the back of the amp.

Finding a mountable fan that has a 120v plug for power probably wouldn't be that difficult...then it's a case of finding a place to mount it inside the cabinet.....and just plug it in whenever you plug in the amp itself. Going through the effort of hard wiring a fan into the power supply of the amp is something that you should take up with the DrZ specifically.
Regardless, I don't see why it's such a big deal to get one of those 'clip' fans that would clip onto one of the cabinet's rear cross braces when you play it. Then, when you pack up your things, just chuck the fan into your gig bag or the back of your combo, if there's room.
Heck, when I gigged regularly, we would take 3-4 floor mounted fans with us...just to keep us from dying of heat stroke...
Yeah - the clip fan isn't too bad. I just like the idea of something built-in. I'd love to hard wire one with an on/off switch, but I don't really want to mess with the amp too much. I may try one of those computer fans, though. Thanks for the ideas!
